Broken bones can occur during an impact, for example during a fall or accident. One of the treatments for fractures is surgery and insertion of a pen is performed.
The healing process for fractures itself depends on the condition of each patient, the severity of the fracture, the location of the fracture, the presence or absence of infection, nutrition, and the presence or absence of infection and complications after fracture.
For the bones in the palms in general, it takes about 6-8 weeks to heal. However, to be completely healed completely it takes a longer time, up to several months. If a pen is inserted, it is removed after 1-2 years or according to the doctor's recommendation.
Regarding activity, physical activity can be done if signs of bone grafting are visible (from a doctor's examination). Physical activity is also carried out in stages according to the patient's condition.
I suggest that you go to an orthopedic doctor according to the schedule given. Try to follow all the recommendations of the doctor who treats you to support your recovery period. You can also ask the treating doctor about when to start physical exercise because the treating doctor will better understand the condition of your bones. To support recovery, you should consume more calcium and high protein foods.
